MM&C’s Joe Suntum and James Roth Set to Speak at ALI’s Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Litigation

Posted December 17, 2018 at 7:24 PM

Two of Miller, Miller & Canby’s eminent domain attorneys will join the national Eminent Domain and Land Valuation Litigation 2019 Conference as presenters. The annual conference is the country’s preeminent gathering of eminent domain professionals. The conference brings together “national experts on the cutting edge of eminent domain and related topics under one roof," said planning co-chair, Robert H. Thomas.

Mr. Suntum will speak to “Tips and Traps for the New Eminent Domain Lawyer”. Mr. Suntum is a principal at Miller, Miller & Canby with decades of trial experience, and he is the firm’s eminent domain practice group leader. He is the Owners’ Counsel of America member attorney for the state of Maryland.  The Owners’ Counsel is a national network of seasoned eminent domain attorneys; membership is selective and restricted to only one member attorney per state.  Mr. Suntum is a nationally-recognized speaker on topics related to eminent domain and condemnation and lectures extensively throughout the country for a variety of legal and educational organizations.

Mr. Roth will address “Fence and Wall Condemnations.” Prior to becoming an attorney and joining Miller, Miller & Canby, Mr. Roth spent over a decade consulting U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to manage land acquisition required for numerous facilities and border infrastructure construction projects, including some 600 miles of fence construction initiated under the Bush administration.  In that role, he supported attorneys from the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and CBP in the litigation of over 300 eminent domain cases across the U.S./Mexico Border.

In addition to private practitioners, faculty will include law professors, government officials and members of the judiciary.  

Other conference highlights will include:
• Navigating displacement of immigrant and refugee
• A look at the Supreme Court's revisit of ripeness
• Flood, wildfire, and other inverse cases
• Proving just compensation for loss of access and damages
• Correcting misconceptions about eminent domain in the media and social platforms
• Pipelines, challenging the take, and compensation pitfalls

The 2019 conference will be held in Palm Springs, California, January 24-26.  For more information click here.
